Hi, I grow cucumbers each year in the GH in black buckets in multi purpose compost. I created a string support around the eves of the GH and put canes in the buckets and tie the cumbers to the canes, and canes to the string.
My tip for cumbers is they love warmth but not direct sunshine, I water the floor to create the humidity that they like... I don't grow toms in the same GH as humidity isn't good for toms. I shade the cumbers with fleece attached to the inside of the GH with clothes pegs
When you plant them make a raised area of compost at the base of the plant and try to avoid wetting that when you water. Poke your finger into the compost to check if they need water, sometimes they wilt if they are too wet. Little and often is what mine get
I see no reason why outdoor ones can't be grown in a GH ..considering our weather Make sure they are outdoor cucumbers and not gherkins.
